What is a weighing  instrument

Weighing  instrument, is the use of Hooke's law or force of the principle of leverage balance to determine the quality of objects. The weighing apparatus is mainly composed of 3 parts of load-bearing system (such as scales), power transfer system (such as lever-force system) and indication system (such as dial). Weighing apparatus according to the structure principle can be divided into mechanical scales, electronic scales, electromechanical combination scale three categories.

Weighing instruments are widely used in industrial, agricultural, commercial, scientific research, medical and health departments. Weighing instrument is the use of Hooke's law or force of the principle of leverage balance to determine the quality of objects. The weighing apparatus is mainly composed of 3 parts of load-bearing system (such as scales), power transfer system (such as lever-force system) and indication system (such as dial). Weighing apparatus according to the structure principle can be divided into mechanical scales, electronic scales, electromechanical combination scale three categories. The mechanical scale is divided into lever scale and spring scale. The measurement method is divided into non automatic scale and automatic scale. Its main varieties have a balance, Steelyard, Hing, platform scale, in the ground, floor scale, scales, belts, postal scales, hanging scales, batching scales and bag scales. Weighing instrument development focus is electronic weighing apparatus. Program-controlled, group control, fax printing records, screen display and other modern technology supporting the use of the weighing instrument full-featured, more efficient. An apparatus for determining the mass of an object by measuring its weight (the size of gravity). Some weighing scales are customarily called scales. Weighing apparatus is widely used in industrial, agricultural, commercial, scientific research, medical and health departments.

China's weighing  instruments industry is a traditional industry with a long history of development and an important basic industry. After the reform and opening up, the Chinese weighing apparatus industry has the rapid development, the weighing apparatus industry management system, the industry structure, the product structure, the technical level and in the national economy position is the change huge. By the end of 2011, China's scale (annual income of 20 million yuan) above the weighing apparatus manufacturing enterprises have 142, of which 83 private enterprises, enterprises 32. 2011 sales revenue of 16.072 billion yuan, year-on-year growth of 29.29%, total profit of 1.527 billion yuan, year-on-year growth of 32.13%.

In the technological development, for many years, China has been mainly mechanical weighing instrument, the 1980s began to expand the use of electronic weighing apparatus and the development of large-scale automatic weighing apparatus, China has been able to independently design and manufacture of high precision, fast operation, accurate measurement of various electronic scales. Because of the rapid development and application of science and technology, weighing instrument products digitization, integration, networking, intelligence will become the development direction and focus of the world's weighing industry.

China's weighing apparatus manufacturing industry in the low-end product market is already in a saturated state, and in the application of High-tech advanced weighing instrument, domestic is still in the process of relying on imports to solve the supply phase, so the future expansion of the industry's direction is mainly concentrated in High-tech high-end product market. Correspondingly, the competition between the domestic weighing manufacturers will focus more on the technical aspect. At the same time, with the continuous entry of transnational enterprises, domestic enterprises will also face more serious challenges, the domestic weighing industry competition will be more intense.

The 2011-2020 is an important period for China to carry out the sustainable development strategy of national economy, promote the development of circular economy, take the new industrialization road and lay the foundation of resource-conserving and environment-friendly society. "Twelve-Five" period, our national economy will maintain sustainable development, drive logistics, machinery, chemicals, ports and other industries, which will give the development of the weighing apparatus manufacturing industry a good opportunity.
